Description

Labruyère Prieur Santenay Clos Genêt 2019

Labruyère Prieur Santenay Clos Genêt is indisputably charming and pretty. Dark ruby colour with intense purple reflections. The bouquet opens with toasty and tobacco notes before leading you towards a velvety and rich palate of pretty tannins and incredible flavour. Ripe and rich, yet fresh and sharp, there's an energetic tangy fruitiness to this one's character.

100% Pinot Noir. The fruit comes from vines that grow in the sandy-loam soils of the Santenay appellation (Côte de Beaune), cultivated either in sustainable agriculture or in conversion to Organic Agriculture. 

Careful cultivation by handpicking the grapes in very small crates. Sorting and vinification in Labruyère's Meursault winery by the talented oenologist Nadine Gublin, who has officiated at Domaine Jacques Prieur since the 1990s. Ageing in oak barrels.
